Which is worse...as far as horrific side effects are involved?  I know they're both steroids...I just want to read other people's experience with the side effects of both.  Thanks!

It depends on the milligrams. I would think though that with the injections you would get side effects faster than with pred.

I've been on both this year and it doesn't really matter for me - I get side-effects from both the shots or the pills as soon as I start taking them. I agree, it depends on the dose, and other stuff, like whether you are exercising, eating low-salt diet, etc.

"Coping with Prednisone" is a book that tells how to deal with the side-effects. (I have no financial connections with this book or the authors or any stores/websites that sell it)
